Blog Give Away: Some Yarn for the New Year

If you need a little yarn inspiration to get the new year off to a good start, you've come to the right place!  Leave a comment below and I'll have the kids draw a random name on New Year's Day to send this yarn on to.  Make sure I've got an email contact for you, or come back to check and see if you've won!  (My apologies, but I can only ship to a U.S. address)

This is a very special yarn from Sheila at Wool 2 Dye 4, one of my favorite places to buy luxurious, but well priced, undyed yarn.  In addition to being incredibly nice, Sheila has the knack for sourcing some of the finest base yarns around, and she always seems to be first with new ideas.  This yarn, Sheila's Sparkle, is a blend of Superwash Merino with just enough nylon so your knitted item will hold its shape, and a little bit of Stellina for sparkle.  We aren't talking tinsel bright here — just enough sparkle to give your new pair of socks a little bit of whimsy.  It's perfection and as an added plus, the yarn was lots of fun to dye.  The give away skein is 438 yards of lovely sock weight yarn in Elliebelly's Pink Love colorway.

Thanks Sheila, for giving us another wonderful yarn to place with!  In addition to the give away skein, I dyed a skein for myself, to use for Ellie's Barn Raising Quilt.

  1. Oh, that’s pretty, and it would look lovely in the Whippoorwill I’m going to make for myself– possibly with my skein of Huckleberry Knits “Inked.”

  2. Those would really help me with my NYE resolution of knitting enough pairs of socks in 2011 to only be wearing hand-knit socks by 2012, lol.

  3. Joyce, have you seen Kraemer’s Sterling? They use real silver in the yarn, plus 20% silk. I’ve been dyeing it for about 1.5 years now and I have to say it’s a dream to dye, not to mention knit.

  4. Have you read the Pinkalicious series? That yarn should be read the book, while eating a pink cupcake.. while wearing a pink dress.
